Heading Home to Dinner 2019

This year’s Heading Home to Dinner event raised more than $177,000 to support families and individuals experiencing homelessness in Greater Boston. A two-day, dine-by-design event envisioned by three interior design leaders – Elizabeth Benedict, Mally Skok, and Kristen Rivoli – and hosted by Boston Design Center and Jamestown, Heading Home to Dinner has quickly become one of Boston’s most notable interior design events.

Generously hosted by Boston Design Center and Jamestown on October 3rd and 4th, this year’s event collectively brought nearly 700 people together to celebrate the success and collaboration of 19 bar cart designs and 23 tablescape designs. Nationally recognized by House Beautiful, the designers who participated in Heading Home to Dinner created outstanding designs, art, fabrics, and more, all in support of Boston’s homeless.

Councilwoman Annissa Essaibi-George took the stage at the gala dinner on Friday, thanking guests for their participation in solving family homelessness in Boston and recognizing Heading Home as a leader and innovator in the homeless sector.

“We are aligned in our work,” said Danielle Ferrier, CEO of Heading Home, “like designers who help their clients create homes that become the epicenter of a family’s life, we, too, look to create safe spaces where our homeless clients will feel valued and loved.”

Our thanks and appreciation to our lead event sponsor, R.P. Marzilli & Company, and bronze event sponsors: Adams & Beasley, Chairish, FBN Construction, Matouk, and Williston Weaves.

We are honored to be a part of this incredible, community-building event put together by New England Home, the Heading Home to Dinner Event Committee, Boston Design Center, and Jamestown.
